    Me again! I want to try and do the Up Close with Rhinos. My 60 day date is 9/18 - the same date & time for my dining reservations. Do I need to have my hubby calling for Rhino at 7 a.m., or should I try to make that reservation at 7 a.m. online? TIA!

    Hi there, Jeanie! Welcome back to planDisney!

    It sounds like you're looking to add a sprinkle of pixie dust to your trip to Walt Disney World Resort! Once I have my Disney Resorts Collection hotel booked and my theme park reservations made with the Disney Park Pass system, I always dream about what's next for my magical vacation. For me, that includes where to dine and which Enchanting Extras I'd like to experience!

    The tours at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park are high on my bucket list, including Up Close with Rhinos and Wild Africa Trek. I'm so excited for you! Jeanie, when it comes to making advance reservations for dining and Enchanting Extras, you can begin making those reservations 60 days prior to your trip. If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can make reservations starting 60 days prior to your trip for the length of your whole stay (up to 10 days)! You can begin booking Up Close with Rhinos and your dining reservations online starting at 6:00 AM and you're welcome to book your dining while your husband books Up Close with Rhinos. For me, I like to have a hot cup of coffee and be ready to go at around 5:45 AM, freshly logged into my My Disney Experience account!

    I hope you get every wish that your heart makes, Jeanie! If you have any other questions, please visit us again.

    You've got a friend in me!
